Go around Bangkok in 1 day to discover all of Xiao Zhan’s birthday billboards!
Today, madan is going around town to show you how to get around and check out Xiao Zhan’s birthday billboard, which has been located all around downtown BKK by fans. However, with so many items to find, we’ve made it easier for you by putting together an excel file.
As for “Xiao Zhan” (aka “Zhan”) is a Chinese idol, actor and singer who gained his popularity from the series ‘The Untamed’. The superstar has just turned 29 years old on the 5th of October.
This article will review and advise you the routes to discover the birthday billboards at various locations around Bangkok that fans from different houses have set up to wish the superstar a prosperous birthday.
We asked other Twitter users and concluded all the locations, including how to get there. Our home is on the Thonburi side of Bangkok and we’re stuck with the rainy weather every single evening, so we chose to start from exploring the BTS, where the majority were outdoor signs, while the MRT consisted of indoor signs. Since it was raining every evening, we set out to explore the outdoor billboards first.
The distance and time between billboards are in the tweets above, the bold cells are the venue or location of each billboard, while italic cells are remarks, so you don’t get lost or go to the wrong spot (like the writer LOL) and waste your precious time, when you should be locating and taking pics with the billboards!
We started with the biggest billboard along the BTS line at MBK (get off at National Stadium BTS Station). If you chose to take the MRT route, start your journey off along the MRT line, get off at Sukhumvit, Phahon Yothin or Phetchaburi Station because all 3 have ‘special’ billboards that are outside of the station, so that you won’t have to spend extra cash exiting and entering the station. However, the smart move would be to buy a One Day pass for the BTS (140 baht), but unfortunately the MRT doesn’t have that kind of card, so you need to plan your journey well.
Let’s start our birthday billboard journey!!
Step into the world of ‘Xiao Zhan’
with the first stop at National Stadium BTS Station and brace yourselves with the giant LED screen in front of MBK. This is a popular spot for all fandoms to display their love and affection through LED screens due to it’s perfect location at the center of Bangkok city. This is the reason why these 4 fanbases chose this spot to begin with.
But if you arrive and see only 4 clips, that means that you’ve missed some. I can confirm that you haven’t seen all of it yet because all the clips on that LED screen run up to 10 whole minutes of this beautiful face (omg that face tho). Snap pics or take a video of it, tweet it and don’t forget to add fanbase hashtags too because some fanbases are organizing fun giveaway rewards from these activities! So come and join the fun 😉
These clips are not only displayed at MBK center, they are spread all over the town at 11 other spots, for instance, 4 at Future Park Rangsit, 16 at Gateway Ekamai, 1 at UTCC and 3 at VRU, because that’s #Shesees08051005’s home. Choose the closest spot to you and take that celebratory selfie!
